Quoted from MSI RX2600 XT Diamond Reviews:Check out these quotes from MSI RX2600 XT Diamond reviews & previews
"MSI should be commended for stepping out of the box and trying to provide a unique Radeon HD 2600 XT experience. If you are one of the few in a situation where you want a video card that can provide HDMI with audio pass-through, this MSI card is ready. If you are timid about overclocking or just want a no fuss fastest out-of-box experience with a Radeon HD 2600 XT GPU based video card, then the MSI RX2600XT Diamond is it."
"Yet it is still a pretty decent Radeon HD 2600 XT with no major flaws that we can spot. Users will be glad that it has an extremely quiet cooler, which is better than the reference cooler. But the major attraction in our opinion has to be its very competitive price of US$134. Compared to its peers of the GDDR4 category, it is about 10 to 20 dollars more affordable and we are comparing the reference versions here. Hence, one could treat the slight overclocking as a bonus and consider this quiet Radeon HD 2600 XT GDDR4 card well worth its cost. At the end of the day, value for money is probably what most users desire, especially for a mid-range card like this. In that view, the MSI RX2600XT Diamond offers a better proposition than the general competition."
"In the end, MSI's RX2600XT Diamond Plus is a good mid-range card -- but some may wish that it had just a little bit more in order to propel into a class of its own: the upper mid-range."
"Well, the MSI RX2600XT Diamond is a excellent multimedia videocard, and if you're looking for something of general purpose, you will not be disappointed. It outputs s-Video or Composite component and HDMI with audio! Few other videocards have offered HDMI signal streams from the DVI port with audio, so from a HTPC perspective the MSI RX2600XT Diamond is fully featured. On the other side of the coin, if you're strictly a gamer, and in particular looking toward DirectX10 game titles, there are other videocard GPUs which provide better framerates for comparable pricing."
"So, it looks like the only application left for the ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT and Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT/GTS is multimedia PCs, especially as they suit that purpose even better than the top-performance products. You should only buy one for games if you dont play games seriously or if you cant afford a more advanced graphics card. If you need a quiet and economical graphics card, and games is not your priority, you should definitely consider the MSI RX2600XT Diamond 512 as one of the best options, but you should look up in the higher class if you want to play games with high-quality visuals."
